“With the dozens of competitions we run throughout the year, we can always rely on Photo Contest Insider to accommodate our Dedicated Emails and last minute deadlines with quick-turnarounds. We continuously receive high sign-ups from their lists and they remain a reliable and trusted source for us.” Carly Martin, See.me
I was having trouble generating traffic to a photo contest I was running on my new socially green travel start-up, www.KutoaTravel.com. I invested in three months of Featured Listings with Photo Contest Insider, and that listing single-handedly drove over ten times more traffic to our site than any other source – including Facebook, LinkedIn, and two other photo contest directories. We suddenly had a flood of entries, and all of them listed Photo Contest Insider as the place they find out about our contest. We will definitely come back to run our next contest. Tessa Hessmiller, Founder, Kutoa
This is the first year that The Shutterbug Award has opened an international category. The results from using Photo Contest Insider have been outstanding. Your site is at the top of our Traffic Sources at 22% of all visits. Sending through Analytic reports to our sponsors is a joy. They can see that their sponsorship of our event is getting the attention they deserve for backing us.
Thank you. Marc Burlace – Shutterbug 2011 Coordinator.
I have been organizing Photo of the Year for the past nine years and in that time we have explored a wide array of strategies for generating traffic to our website and exposure for our photography contest. Posting our contest on Photo Contest Insider has proven to be one of the most effective tools we have ever used and referrals from their site account for nearly a quarter of all traffic to our site. Thank you Photo Contest Insider for your valuable role in boosting exposure for our contest!

Photo Contest Insider is our top referrer, delivering almost double the traffic of our 2nd largest referrer. The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards has been working with PCI since our inception around 18 months ago. We have also worked with a number of other websites, but we have found the acquisition costs through PCI for an entrant to be around 70% lower than our 2nd largest referrer. The success we have achieved with The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards would have been almost impossible without our partnership with Photo Contest Insider, not to mention the personal and expert advertising advice we receive from them.

A quick note to thank you for featuring the Renaissance Photography competition on your site. This competition raises money for breast cancer and thanks to your site (where 36% of our hits came from)we had 3,700 entries from 78 countries and raised £22,000 for breast cancer. Thanks for your support and for a great site. Best regards, Fiona, www.renaissancephotography.org
Photo Travel Review Magazine has benefited greatly from Photo Contest Insider. Since associating with your site, our number of submissions for our Travel Photo of the Year Competition are ten times what they were before. It should be noted as well that since the link was added to your site, we have seen our overall web traffic double! We highly commend your site and advise others to participate. Thank you for what you are doing. Best regards.”

Since we started listing our Photographic competitions on PCI we have found a new source of Competition entries and our members now come from all parts of the globe and this is a big thanks to PCI. It is refreshing to see our competitions listed on PCI and we achieve new entries to our photo competitions and new members on a daily basis. I would recommend anyone in using PCI they won’t be disappointed. A big thanks to PCI from all at Pictures2win” Yours,

Having our contest listed on the Photo Contest Insider has had a significant impact for us. Roughly a third of our entrants came via PCI”

Testimonials from Phtographers

Hi, I just wanted to thank you for the regular email I receive from you giving information about online photographic competitions. If I had not received it I would not have known about The farmers Weekly 2011 competition. As a result I entered and won £100 for winning the ‘Arable’ category with my shot of a tractor. here is the link: Then to top it all I won the overall competition and the prize was a £700 Nikon D90!
So thank you VERY much! Best wishes, Jean
In 2010 I entered 23 contests from your site. I won or placed in 6.

Just a quick note to express my gratitude for this wonderful site. It’s so well researched and very up to date, and I appreciate the time you spend compiling these competitions together for the site.
Great work and thanks!

This site is a real help to me! Frustrated because I couldn’t find photo contests for my age (17), this site has helped me to find contests open to me. Everything is organized well and site navigation is wonderful. This amature photo grapher has been encouraged. :) With thanks,
Olivia Carbone
